In the side tab where it says "Polls" it currently indicates that I have 5 unread polls. Unfortunately, when I go to the "New" tab it shows none. This is frustrating. Is anyone else experience this problem?

On the iPad, it doesn't show how many unread polls you have, and the polls shown are always long. It's never empty.

Mine usually shows 1 or 2 when it is empty, but it isn't in my face like the goofy badge ball frantically advertising the 26 updates (in ONE day!) on the App Store icon. Don't look at it and it won't bother you as much.

I don't try to answer every poll. So, the number is meaningless to me. It's very possible the number is wrong. They can't even get the poll result bars under an answered poll to work right. The app is showing signs of neglect.

Why yes, yes I do. This happens everyday on my phone. I can go through and vote on every poll in the "new" section and it always says there are 7 unanswered polls.

The number is up to 6

I had it happen to me last week but the number went away after an hour or two.

Did you mark at polls as read?

That is what I came to ask.

If you did, that is the likely reason.

Nope. A couple days ago the number was 1 it's steadily rising

That's the only reason I know of that keeps the number from reaching zero. (I'm so far behind in voting on polls that I haven't seen anything anywhere near zero for a while, myself.)

Perhaps you hit the "mark as read" button on a few of them *accidentally*? Why don't you take a spin through your All list, and see if there are 5 polls that you don't seem to have voted on yet.

Huh. I don't know what it could be, then.

I wish I were closer to 0 myself, so I could do a better job of checking it out. I may have to do a marathon voting session. It would also be good to find out how prevalent the issue is.
